Repainted dolls by Noel Cruz

Noel Cruz started doing portraits at a very young age. Self-taught for several years, he studied the works of numerous artists in his native country, the Philippines. Gradually overtime, his natural talent grew and developed. He began taking commissions at 16, and has done countless portraits since. Repainting dolls happened by accident when he was looking for a Gene doll to add to his wife's collection.He discovered that painting a doll's face is very much like painting on canvas or paper, but with the extra challenge of working on a three-dimensional surface as well as a different surface texture. Here are some of his repainted dolls.
